Enjoy beautiful scenery with last minute holidays to Scotland
Soak up the Scottish atmosphere
Scotland is the antithesis of traditional beach holidays; it’s a connoisseur’s country with some of the finest landscapes in the world, as well as amazing cities. The Scottish Highlands are legendary, and for good reason as it’s one of the few places where you can truly get back to nature. Hundreds of miles of heath, mountains and more mean you can drive in any direction and enjoy the solitude of nature. You can also come face to face with rare wildlife, including Ospreys and Golden Eagles, although there’s no guarantee you’ll come across Nessie if you make the trip to the Loch.
Scotland is a country steeped in tradition and the people are fiercely proud of their independence from neighbouring England, as well as their heritage. The highland games show the Scots in full flow and you might be lucky enough to see one of these events in action, where the locals come out resplendent in their traditional kilts and compete in events like hammer throws and caber tossing, as well as showing their prowess with the axe.
Tradition is alive and well
The Scots have kept a good number of traditions alive and well, including more traditional farming methods thanks to the vast tracts of land, which means that wool production remains largely unchanged and some of the best materials come from north of the border. Whiskey is also serious business in Scotland, and you can tour the traditional distilleries that still age the liquor in traditional oak barrels to this day. If you’re a fan of food and drink then Scotland could surprise you, with some of the finest meats you’ll encounter in the British isles.
A friendly welcome
Whether you head to the hills or the stylish city of Edinburgh, Scotland is renowned for its friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The parties, including the New Year’s Hogmanay events, are legendary. From the tiniest guest house to the largest city centre hotel, you’re guaranteed a friendly and informal welcome that marks Scotland apart and will ensure that your holiday stays fresh in your mind long after you have returned home.
